Farkas Pastry Shoppe

If you or somebody you love is fond of classic European pastries, you know all about this amazing Ohio City bakery. For 60 years, Farkas has been lovingly producing the types of Hungarian treats that draw people out of their homes — wherever they may stand — and down to the shop. Farkas rolls out a parade of fruit-filled Linzers, raisin and walnut-filled nut rolls, elegant buttercream and cake layered Dobos tortes, lemon squares, and the best Napoleons you’re likely to find in the region. Known by the faithful as “kremes,” these ethereal desserts are a dream-like stack of custard, whipped cream and puff pastry.
